The Cardinals have placed RP Jason Motte (back strain) on the 15-day disabled list Friday.
Motte hasn't pitched since August 1 because of the back issue, so he'll hot the DL to get some rest while the club opens up a roster spot for themselves. Nick Greenwood will get the call for the time being.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
